Tour de France 2021: Stage 2 – Matthieu Van der Poel, an emotional win for his Grandad
A phenomenal ride on the Mûr-de-Bretagne for the time bonus on the first pass, followed with an outstanding solo effort to win the stage and take the Yellow Jersey that his grand-father Raymond Poulidor never had in his prestigious career.
Matthieu was beside himself with the emotion and significance of his win, completely understandable and admirable. What a great start to the race by this young man.
I’m a mixed media visual artist working in Leicestershire in the UK. I trained in Fine Art using different media including oils and acrylics, but my recent work reflects my love of drawn media, especially pen, ink, watercolour and pastels. My theme is movement – My subjects are varied from landscape, animals, musicians, dancers and sport, especially cycling. The unifying feature of all these subjects is that they are constantly changing – there is movement and energy everywhere.
